My Bathroom “Pinnspiration”

I have been stuck when it comes to our master bath. It is a really large, very sterile, builder basic bathroom with the huge, rarely used tub, awful lighting and the worst storage ever. The vanity I made over is helping with some of the storage, and gave me a direction to head with the room. I still had some places that were just wearing me out.

Do you have spots in your house that just make you tired just looking at them? I do. Master bath is number one on that list. I did what I do when I am stuck. I went to Pinterest, and I went shopping. On my weekend adventure to Canton, we picked up a few things for my bathroom. They are probably not things you would think of as bathroom items, but they are to me. I recently discovered that we do not have a towel bar in our bathroom. How did I miss that? I mean how did I miss that for two months? I was constantly frustrated that towels wer on the floor, but it never hit me that Hubby did not have a place for his towel. I hang my towel across the edge of the tub to dry, but let’s just say not everyone who uses the master bath takes care of their wet towels. I found  two door knob assemblies for $10.00 each and knew immediately that they would become my towel knobs. No pictures yet because I couldn’t dig them out of the truck  They are buried under a headboard and four chairs.  My Pinnspiration  for this project comes from Not Just a Housewife

I will be taking the lock unit apart for a total of four knobs and lock units as hangers. There is a big empty wall behind my tub that needs love

I am thinking about something like what you see below but I just got an old section of fencing that I may add shelves to and hang as a unit. There will be rustic shelves at the end of the tub one way or another with some of my milk glass and other water-safe treasures.

Right now I have a very generic metal thing hanging there because I guess I was waiting for inspiration. I Craftycreationswithkiley  ( No Longer A Live Site) I really like the look of these letters. The bottom of my wall is going to be board and batten. Securing Board and Batten I love a good DIY tutorial. DIY VILLAGE Do you remember my vanity?

I posted the finished project at My Burb Home, but I wanted you to see how it looks in the bathroom. It is missing the awesome mirror we found this past weekend, but hopefully you get the idea. 20140304-192624.jpg

I believe that there was originally a large round mirror on this vanity and was happy to find one that I think could have been orginal.  The bathroom is coming together in my head and for me that is half the battle.  Once I can see what I want in my imagination I am ready to go.  Now to turn that into a reality.
I would love to hear your thoughts on my plans. I get the best ideas from you all.

  1. I love your plans. Especially the board and batten wall and the hanging knobs. I am really wanting to take on the board and batten project in my kitchen. I am still just a little bit nervous to take it on.
